Thamer International School’s Annual Science Fair
By Fatima Hossam (8-I),
On Wednesday, 6th of March, the Annual Science Fair was held in our school, and we certainly learnt new and interesting facts that we never knew we could experience learning.
The students from middle and high school were divided into groups, and each chose a different topic to demonstrate by doing live and practical experiments. Furthermore, they competed and presented their results in the form of a report, display board, and/or models that they had created.

TIS SCOOP, Wake Up Wednesday
By Naama Banaja (12-D),
Wake Up Wednesday is a weekly radio segment that replaces the mundane power-points with something that’s more motivating and energizing.
It was conceptualized and begun by the SLC heads with a nudge from their English teacher. The topics vary every week and also depends on which department is taking the helm. For example, the first broadcast was taken over by the C&I whose topic of choice was to remind the seniors of their university deadlines and for the younger batches to be prepared earlier. I personally helped with the technical aspects on both broadcast by playing or arranging any media file needed. This project has received mixed reviews, but mostly positive especially from the staff, students, and the head of Senior School herself.

The sun is bright
And the birds are flying
As they gently chirp
A woman notices

الزمان هو أحد أيام الألفية الثالثة، المكان في إحدى المختبرات العلمية المدرسية، فجأة دخل الحسين بن الحسن ابن علي بن سينا، نظر إلي، وتوجه إلي مباشرة، كنت في غاية الاضطراب والسعادة! نعم إنه هو الشيخ الرئيس ابن سينا أعظم أطباء عصره والعصور اللاحقة، اقترب مني وابتسم ابتسامة تدل على مزيج من الفخر والفرح والتواضع.
- أهلاً وسهلاً بعالمنا الجليل، كيف حالك يا سيدي؟
- بخير، في أحسن حال والحمد لله، ولكن كيف عرفتني؟
أعتز بوطني... وأحترم كلّ الثقافات اليوم العالمي في مدارس ثــامـــر العالمية
بقلم : الطالب خالد بندر الزغبي/ الثامن (د)
اعتادت مدارس ثـــامــر العالمية أن تحتفل كل سنة باليوم العالمي؛ وهو يوم يتعرّف فيه الطلبة على بعض بلدان العالم وعاداتهم وتقاليدهم، وتراثهم الشعبي. وفعلاً فقد تقرر هذه السنة الاحتفال بهذا اليوم، وتمّ وضع خطة شاملة من قبل الإدارة؛ للعمل على إنجاح هذا الحفل، حيث قام كل معلم بتدريب فصل من فصول المرحلة الابتدائية والمتوسطة على تمثيل بلدٍ يختاره الطلبة.
بدأنا نتدرب وعشنا جوّاً رائعاً امتاز بالتعاون والسعادة والانضباط، وبعد جهد واجتهاد أصبحنا جاهزين للعروض على مسرح المدرسة أمام والدينا وأساتذتنا وزملائنا الطلبة من المراحل المختلفة.
قُمنا بعرض فقرات مختلفة عن بلدان عربية وعالمية، ارتدينا زيّها الرسمي وعرّفنا بها ثم قدّمنا عروضاً مسرحية ورقصات شعبية تخصّها.
كان يوماً مميزاً بالفعل، شعر الحضور بالفرح والسعادة والفخر بما قدمناه من عروض. أشكر مدرستنا، وأشكر كل من ساهم في إنجاح هذا اليوم الجميل. أفتخر بعروبتي وانتمائي.
أغلى من الياقوت
بقلم: محمد طارق رجب / الحادي عشر (ب)
ليس من دمي ولحمي ولكن قرابتنا أعظم بكثير
الذي يفتح باب قلبي ويدخل إليه النور
من أضحكني حينما كانت الهموم تغرقني
من شاركني ألمي وقاسمني فرحتي
ليس أخي بالدم ولكنه أخي بالروح
أرواحنا متصلة ولو زالت أجسادنا
